Doris Day – Twelve O'Clock Tonight lyrics

Twelve o'clock tonight
(Twelve o'clock tonight)
Meet me at the door
(Meet me at the door)

I'll kiss you goodnight
(I'll kiss you goodnight)
Once more (once more)

Then I'll go to bed
(Gotta go to bed)
Busy day ahead
(Busy day ahead)

But I know instead
(But I know instead)
I'll walk the floor
(Walk the floor)

Since I've been with you
Can't concentrate
Want to stay up light
Baby, I'll wait for you

Then I'll hold you tight
(Then I'll hold you tight)
Til the sun is bright
(Til the sun is bright)

Meet me at the door (for sure)
At twelve o'clock tonight
(Twelve o'clock tonight)

Twelve o'clock tonight
Mmm, middle of the night
Not a soul in sight
To interfere with our love

Teacher may scold
Mama may call
But if we're quiet
Down in the hall

I'll be hugging you tight
(I'll be hugging you tight)
Twelve o'clock tonight

Twelve o'clock tonight
Twelve o'clock tonight
Twelve o'clock tonight
